The Jane Austen Book Club

Explores Austen&#39s adage that general incivility is at love&#39s essence. Sylvia&#39s husband dumps her for another woman, so Bernadette and Jocelyn organize a book club to distract her. They recruit Sylvia&#39s daughter Allegra; Prudie, a young teacher whose marriage may be on the rocks; and Grigg, a sci-fi fan who joins out of attraction to Jocelyn. The six read and discuss one Austen novel per month. Jocelyn tries to interest Grigg in Sylvia; Allegra falls in love with a woman she meets skydiving; Prudie contemplates an affair with a student; Sylvia&#39s ex keeps popping up. In the discussions, characters reveal themselves in their comments. By the end, are truths universally acknowledged?
